Daniel Craig will reprise his role as James Bond for the fifth and final time when No Time To Die releases in UK theatres on September 30, 2021. From jumping a Montesa Cota 4RT between boats in Quantum of Solace to ripping a Honda CRF250R through a Turkish Bazaar in Skyfall, Craig’s 007 is no stranger to two-wheeled chases.
However, the 25th installation in the long-running series returns Bond to his British roots with the inclusion of Triumph’s Scrambler 1200 and the Tiger 900. Introduced in May, 2021, the Scrambler 1200 Bond Edition celebrated the latest Bond film despite the COVID-19 health crisis pushing the release date to November, 2020. Of course, the ongoing pandemic forced MGM and Universal to delay distribution even further, finally landing on September 30 for the UK and October 8 in the US.
With the film set to hit theatres in a few weeks, Triumph is honouring No Time To Die yet again with the Tiger 900 Bond Edition. Based on the Tiger 900 Rally Pro, the limited-edition ADV still features Hinckley’s innovative 900cc, T-Plane triple good for 94 bhp and 64 lb-ft of torque. However, the Bond Edition also favours a clandestine Matt Sapphire Black paint scheme along with gold accents and graphics to add some 007 flair.

In addition to the matte black livery, the brand coats the frame, headlight finishers, side panels, sump guard, pillion footrest hangers, auxiliary lamp shrouds, and engine guards in stealthy black as well. Adding an air of sophistication, the billet machined handlebar clamp displays each bike’s unit number among the 250 limited-edition Tigers.
The Bond Edition isn’t just easy on the eyes though. Triumph includes a premium Arrow Silencer for more grunt and throws in a set of Michelin Anakee Wild tyres (along with factory-fitted Bridgestone Battlax tyres) for extra grip off-road. A heated rider and pillion seat complete with Bond Edition branding comes standard on the special-edition ADV while a custom 007 TFT screen animation welcomes the rider upon each startup.
While Triumph hasn’t unveiled pricing or availability just yet, each Tiger 900 Bond Edition will come with a signed certificate of authenticity.
